  Curiosity's View Of "Cooperstown" Outcrop On Route To Mount Sharp

Curiosity's View Of "Cooperstown" Outcrop On Route To Mount Sharp
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: The low ridge that appears as a dark band below the horizon in the center of this scene is a Martian outcrop called "Cooperstown," a possible site for contact inspection with tools on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. The ridge extends roughly 100 feet (about 30 meters) from left to right, and it is about 260 feet (about 80 meters) away from the location from which Curiosity captured this view.
